Update on actionable items:

Event reports/reviews:

  • Fresher Welcome:

Loft and clubroom idea was a great idea, room was cramped during the screening. Good feedback from community. Suggestion is chairs instead of getting everyone to sit on the floor.

  • Madfest:

Madman was happy with what we’ve done, panels were not that great, but quizzes were really successful. Try to avoid doing panels in the future.

  • BBQ:

Gas ran out halfway. However, 125 sausages all sold out. Bread was overbought. No signups on the day. Aim of BBQ is to socialise. Try to keep aim in mind for future BBQ’s.

  • Smash/Pokemon:

Most attendees in past tournaments were from curtin. This time, 25 entries for smash and pokemon was not so successful. This time, event was mostly attended by our own members. Pizza run was done by foot instead of car. May need to assign more people to help with the event. 3 set ups this time. May need to contact curtin smash community before future smash tournaments. Although turnups were not great, it was a good event for our community.

  • Prosh Summary:

10 people from UWAnime went. Things went smoothly. Meeting in the clubroom is a better option for future prosh. Think of a better theme for future. Closed poll for future prosh event.

New committee:

Paper work regarding new committee has been completed.

Room rearrangement:

Manga shelf between smash and table or table and television. Need to discuss.

Waifu wars/husband hustle:

Zak mentions that he doesn’t want to write posts regarding husband hustles/ waifu wars. Ryan has been assigned with the new role. Need more ideas for future themes. Seasonal Showdown etc. Discuss characters for the future polls.



EMP has been launched for the karaoke. Event will be held on Thursday. Japanese and English karaoke songs time segregation has been suggested as Japanese songs scare people away. Introduction to karaoke before the event. Song lists to be written on whiteboard and someone will put the songs into the wii-u.


Paddy is in charge of event, shortlisted helpers are: Ryan, Bryan, Lawrence and Twin. Event will be held on the 20th of April. Most likely format will just be an introductory workshop to Japanese mah-jong. Paddy will launch EMP and Book loft when ready. Sets will be brought in by Paddy and Twin.

Tokyo Alley:

Outside event done by Tokyo underground and some artists. Mainly for artists to showcase their work and sell their work.

Has been pushed back to Semester 2, $110 needs to spent to hire the undercroft. If event is happening then all committee will have to put in more effort. Food needs to be provided for the artists.

Lewis motions to spend $115 to hire the Undercroft.
